The #nyrr #goachilles 4m run in #centralpark today was absolutely #inspiring. It was such an #honor to run with these brave men & women. When you feel like you cannot go another step, that's when you give it everything you've got. That's exactly what each & every one of you did today. Tough times never last, but tough people do! #thankyouforyourservice #proudtobeanamerican #thankasoldier #achillesfreedomteam #freedom #strongaf #hope #possibility #nyc #jonstewart #racebuddy #mileschangeyou #igersnyc #instagood #runstrong #nevergiveup #therealmvp

First long run in the books for NYC! I always rely on my @theprobar Bolt Organic Energy Chews for sustained energy. They don't contain fructose (which can lead to GI distress), preservatives, or toxic artificial colors like many other sports drinks and gels on the market. I even give them to my 7 year old during sporting events. #foodforfuel #probar #sportsnutrition #nutritionspecialist #fitfuel #nycmarathon #achillesinternational #achillesfreedomteam

NYC Marathon training begins Monday!! Decided to pull out one of my favorite videos this morning in preparation. I love how @drjordanmetzl incorporates strength, balance, and cardio bursts. All important components for runners (and any athlete for that matter). Whether you are a beginner or elite, this video is something to try!
Great news to share as well...we are 1/3 of the way toward our fundraising goal for Achilles International!!! Check out my site at

As we remember those who gave their lives on this Memorial Day, I wanted to re-post this photo from @runnersworldmag from a few days ago. The Achilles Freedom Team gives our warriors hope and the opportunity to accomplish their goals. I am so excited to be running the NYC Marathon this November as part of the Achilles Team! Please take a minute and visit my site down below to find out more. Thank you to all who served, or currently serve, our country. Your bravery and heroism make me proud to be an American! crowdrise.com/achilles-international-nyc-2017/fundraiser/ashleydownes #memorialdayweekend #memorialday #runnersworldmag #achillesfreedomteam #nycmarathon #bostonmarathon2017

Repost from my good friend, Earl (@earlgranville): "Just found this of "that moment" crossing the finish line carrying @andimarie1 at the 2017 @bostonmarathon. I really didn't expect this moment to grab the world like it has....so I'm going to use this attention wisely.
As human beings, we tend to come across adversity in our lives. Depression, guilt, sadness, feelings of being lost, emptiness...you get the idea. If there's something I can inform planet earth is this:
You have choices when battling these emotions. I feel most of us tend to break when the weight of adversity over powers us inside...but before it gets to that point, remember, you still have choices. Make the choice to do your best (I understand it's difficult) to do what's best for you to find that happiness again and love a healthy life. Sometimes it may be a change of attitude and stepping out of your comfort zone.
I lost my twin brother, SSG Joe Granville, after I lost my leg in Afghanistan while he was still serving in the military. He took his own life...which brought me to quite a bit of bad decisions I was making for the obvious reasons hurting the ones I cared about. Not taking responsibilities for my actions. Blaming everybody else.
I made the decision to change after learning how proud Joe was of my physical accomplishes, this became my fuel to challenge myself more, a decision I still make today. Let's just I try to live a happy healthy life now hopefully helping others with their physical and mental adversities as a speaker or with being physically active, and I don't do it alone....I've got a wonderful group of friends and like minded people next to me in this fight together. And I hope it's making an impact for anybody who may be struggling.
Just remember #PlanetEarth, you never have to carry that weight alone if it gets too heavy. We must stop destroying ourselves with this current divide in our nation 🇺🇸. Let's carry that weight for all of us. #unity Photo by my good friend @josephkelleyphotography.
